Nolo, On line ski teaching is a bit like phone sex. It's just words and should not be confused with the real thing
Tromano, I feel it's wrong to complain about pros debating ideas instead of teaching those who come to the site seeking free lessons. I've personally helped more than a few folks along their learning path and done so with no expectation of being compensated. I've also participated in more than a few instructor to instructor debates. But isn't it really my choice how I choose to participate here? Of course when you start paying me that all changes and you certainly would have the right to insist on me only teaching your members. Till then, any teaching I do here is strictly voluntary and my choice. Nuff said?
But we're drifting, Epic disclaims any responsibility for what gets posted here so it's hard for me to see them taking credit for what gets posted here, or any learning that occurs because of those posts. The value is in the information voluteers share with others and credit needs to go out to those pros, not to the web site itself.
